IBM has added some new Node.js debugging capabilities to its Bluemix platform as a service. The cloud development platform now supports popular open source debugging tools, including node-inspector and tty.js. Developers can learn more details about how to use the new feature through the IBM Bluemix Blog.
Last month, IBM purchased StrongLoop, which employs many of the top contributors to Node.js. IBM announced plans to incorporate StrongLoop’s expertise into its development tools. Marie Wieck, general manager of middleware for IBM Systems, said, “By bringing together StrongLoop’s Node.js capabilities to rapidly create APIs with IBM’s leadership in Java and API management on our cloud platform, we are unlocking the innovation potential of two vibrant development communities.”
